Welcome to the safe market in unsafe times.
In a new video detailing the making of Fear the Walking Dead Episode 10, Kim Dickens explains that the market Madison visits in search of water was just as “otherworldly” as it appeared onscreen.
Creating this new and dark location inside a bullfighting arena was a herculean task that involved 108 extras.
“We tried to create something that we’ve never seen before,” says Director Paco Cabezas. “There are a lot of violent and deadly elements around the plaza.”
Add in items such as mugs, electrical equipment and pliers — or what Production Designer Bernardo Trujillo considers “things that are really useful after the apocalypse” — and you’ve got yourself an impressive apocalyptic market.
“This place is visually so emotional and full and vibrant and haunted,” says Dickens.
